Problem

Heavy rainfall and offsite drainage in Frisco, TX caused the slope along Lebanon Road and the overhead railroad bridge to fail.

Solution

To repair the roadway and railroad bridge embankment slope, the consulting engineer chose ARMORMAX® 75 Engineered Earth Armoring Solution for repair and protection. This system was chosen because it offered a lower cost solution, less traffic impact and faster installation than traditional hard armoring solutions like rock and concrete.

Performance

The engineered earth vegetated outcome was more aesthetically pleasing as it blended into the adjacent surroundings and, the vegetated system provides water quality benefits by filtering pollutants from the adjacent roadway and railroad stormwater runoff prior to entering the closed storm drainage system.
